I completed my first short story! I must say, I’m partial to novels. But this short story stretched my writing muscles. Telling a story in 4,000 words, one must be concise. No rambling.
Did I mention I love to ramble. For me, it develops the story. You learn the characters and the setting more intimately in novels. But short stories have their nuances. A short story is sharp and quick, enveloping the reader for however brief a time completely in its world.
I made a vow in my last post. So, I also read a book this week! I didn’t venture out this time. I read who I know and love. Linda Howard. I read Diamond Bay and devoured it short time. It made me hungry for more.
Novels or Short Stories, which do you prefer?
